Today Congressman Henry Cuellar, TX-28, released the following response to the death of Commandante Rolando Flores Villegas in Ciudad Miguel Aleman:

"My deepest sympathies go out to the Flores family and the law enforcement community along the border. Commandante Flores had a reputation for cooperation and camaraderie with his American counterparts and he will sorely be missed. Commandante Flores and many of his peers had continued to search for David Hartley in the face of grave threats and imminent danger. This tragic incident demonstrates the continued efforts of the Mexican law enforcement community to help us in America solve the Hartley case. For reasons like this, I have been a vocal proponent of the Merida Initiative and making sure we provide ample support for our international partners in border security. With grief in our hearts, we in the South Texas community are hopeful that the investigation and search will continue until the Hartley case is resolved."
